St Nicholas School

St Nicholas School Photo #1 - On the Stanford Achievement Test, our students consistently achieve scores well above the national averages. The graduates of St. Nicholas School go on to a variety of the best high schools and universities. More than a third of our seniors consistently qualify to enter honors programs in the high schools of their choice.
St Nicholas School Photo #2 - The fundamentals of reading, phonics and math are emphasized in an accelerated academic curriculum. Work habits are reinforced through daily homework assignments. Study skills are taught and practiced throughout the grade levels. We encourage our students to not only succeed, but to excel. Students are given opportunities to challenge themselves through enrichment projects and creative activities to develop their critical thinking skills. Our classes are designed to be at or below 20 students per class to better meet the individual needs of our students, maximizing their full potential while developing a sense of independence and self-confidence.
St Nicholas School Photo #3 - Children are given opportunities to discover the world around them through hands on activities, field trips, and scientific inquiry-based learning.
St Nicholas School Photo #4 - Students perform in a Christmas Extravaganza and in a Celebration of Greek Independence Day. Students receive Greek language instruction as part of the curriculum for kindergarten through sixth grade. Students celebrate their own heritage as part of the curriculum through "show and tell", social studies, and creative projects.
St Nicholas School Photo #5 - A four day Senior Retreat for eighth graders culminates the years at St. Nicholas. St. Nicholas School has always felt like home for our students. Many of our alumni continue to stay in contact with their teachers and remain close friends with their classmates.

I am a parent of 2 children that attended this school. It is one of the best private schools offered in the San Fernando Valley. My children received the best foundation and study skills. they both went on to the high school of their choice and have become successful adults and we owe it all to the education they received here.
